It was nice to see a great start to the season for the stable with a double at the Vaal yesterday!
The first winner was by SURCHARGE in Race 6. He has just turned 3 years old and followed up his juvenile win in good fashion, now making him a 2 time winner from just 3 starts. He needed to shoulder top weight against some older campaigners and had his work cut out for him, however it wa
s his class that pulled him through to win going away. The stable has high hopes for him in the future and he should progress into a lovely sort in time.
It was then the lucky last that saw MOSHAV take his career wins to 3. He was able to ultilise the favorable outside rail, was ridden with patience and came through as an easy winner! He has always been a consistent gelding and a pleasure to own and train. With the correct handicapping and placing he is definitely a sort that has a couple more wins left in him.
The cherry on top o for the day was the fact that both horses are owned by loyal patron, Mr Ian van Schalkwyk and without the ongoing support these type of winners are impossible to produce. A big congratulations and may the good form continue as the season progresses!
Once again, a big thanks to sponsor - HOLLYWOODBETS.
